The AIA 2030 DDx Automated Programming Interface (API) gives users the ability to import a set of project data fields directly from an energy modeling tool. The energy modeling tool import feature allows a project team member to add or update a project that has been modeled in an energy modeling tool to the firm’s account in the DDx database. Administrators must provide access by generating a user key in the “My Account” section.
These energy modeling tools can import directly import project data into the DDx:
- Autodesk Insight 360
- Sefaira Architecture
- Sefaira Systems
- Cove Tool
- NEO Net Energy Optimizer
Note that only administrators can submit a project (through the Portfolio screen) after it has been created or modified through an energy modeling tool. Further information about how this connection works can be found in the 2030 API Implementation Guide below. This guide describes technical details for modeling tool developers to connect software programs to the DDx.
2030 API Implementation Guide
Welcome to the American Institute of Architects (AIA) 2030 Design Data Exchange (DDx) API. This guide outlines the steps to get you in motion and the relevant links to additional detail. The ability to import project data from an energy modeling tool is the first feature being exposed in the DDx API. The intent is to expand the data integration capabilities of the DDx through the API over time.
